Details for Stob na Broige

Stob na Broige is the 2nd smallest highest of the 4 peaks which form the ridge Buachaille Etive Mor and is situated on the north eastern side of this long ridge and is munro status. Buachaille Etive Mor stands in an angle between Glen Coe & Glen Etive with the River Etive & River Coupall bounding it's edges.

The Buachaille Etive Mòr is an elongated 8km(5m) ridge running north-eastern to south westerly which contains the four peaks Stob Dearg (1022m), Stob na doire (1011m), Stob na Broige 956m) & Stob Coire Altrum (941m). Stob na Broige summit point is situated on the south west of the ridge and is marked with a summit carn and shelter built from local granites. It overlooks Glen Etive on the south and the glen Lairig Gartain on the north. This munro is often overlooked as it lives in the shadow of it's more famous munro Stob Dearg that lies on the south east of the ridge.

Usual access is from NN206513 just to the north of Eas an Fhir Mhoir where the ascent is up very steep grass and scree onto the top Stob Coire Altruim then south west along the ridge to reach the summit. Alternatively the summit can be climbed by traversing the whole Buachaille Etive Mòr Ridge starting from Altnafeadh NN220563 where there's an obvious path which leads up Coire na Tulaich eventually leading to a steep slope of scree which needs to scrambled up which gives access to the ridge and the 4 summits.

From the summit the best views on a clear day are to the south east to hills of the black mount & to the south west to Ben Starav the highest of Etive Munros and Loch Etive in the distance.
